Fairway Navigation - Observing Safety-Related Performance in a Bridge Simulator

ABSTRACT: This paper proposes an approach of measuring navigation performance using a full mission bridge simulator. The motivation for this research is the updates in equipment and that the desire of using new instruments and technology not always is accompanied by analyses of the impact of the changes. The task of navigating in a fairway is proposed to be assessed through various methods to answer questions related to performance and the experience of using bridge equipment. The overall aim is to reach a higher degree of understanding and knowledge through the testing of different instrumentation setups.
